The PhoneGap Developer App

The Adobe PhoneGap developer team is offering a cool native app for iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices called The PhoneGap Developer App.

The PhoneGap Developer App

Using the app is really easy as described on the web site:

  1. Install the desktop app (if you are already using phonegap, task completed).
  2. Download and install the app on your mobile device.
  3. Start a local server on your desktop and pair your mobile device with your desktop (desktop and phone have to be in the same wireless network).
  4. Watch your app directly on the mobile device while any code changes will instantly be reflected.
You can develop and test your native apps quite easily without an additional deployment overhead. All the base plugins are supported (but currently is is not possible to use 3rd party plugins like the BarcodeScanner).

I have added this cool thing on my PhoneGap section as a must have tool for PhoneGap development.

TaskCircle Widget

Currently UI5 1.24 Beta is available for testing, but not all of the widgets find their way into the Explored App.

One new widget (Since 1.22) is the sap.ui.suite.TaskCircle which is currently flagged as experimental.

For the impatient, this is a preview how it looks.
